On a perilymphatic fistula, there is an extravasation of the perilymph fluid into the middle ear cavity. Cross-sectional imaging techniques have very important role in evaluation of inner and middle ear structures and temporal bone. While thin section CT scans can show successfully pneumolabyrinth and temporal bone fracture, high-resolution 3D volumetric MRI sequences can help to demonstrate posttraumatic ear effusion and cerebrospinal fluid fistula into inner ear or middle ear.
